College Roommates for Kids on the Spectrum

Jen - posted on 05/02/2017 ( 1 mom has responded )




My son is on the spectrum and will be transferring to a university in the Fall. This is a monumental achievement, as I'm sure many of you can relate to. Guess what! I find nothing available to support our kids in finding a roommate with similar interests, which are not always common to those who like to party and get involved in sports. Anyone out there with suggestions? I'm trying to find some connections. Thanks Moms!!

Has he filled out the university's roomate matching survey? The one my son did was pretty detailed. Is anyone where he is currently transferring as well? Even if they aren't exactly the same it may be better to know who he's rooming with than have the unknown. If the university has 24 hour quiet dorms or floors he may want to request that - probably cuts down on the partying! I would also contact the school's division of special services and ask them for advice too - that's one reason they are there! Can I ask what college it is?
